About the property

Villas in Vrbanj, Hvar Island, Dalmatia, Croatia - Quiet Location, Easy Access to Countryside, Beaches, Ports and Amenities

Villa Arancin offers 4-star accommodation in the peaceful village of Vrbanj, which is literally in the heart of the island, so it's very convenient to go anywhere. The island is renowned for its wonderful climate so if you are fed up with the bad weather in your country, come and enjoy a never-ending sunshine. Well, almost never-ending! You'll be able to drink fine wines and eat the divine Dalmatian food which can make you feel like being in paradise. Villa Arancin, which is equipped to the highest standard, would suit a group of friends or families. We offer two tastefully restored stone houses. They consist of three separate appartments. There's a swimming pool, a large Mediterranean garden, an indoor barbecue,a billiards room and a private parking place. It provides an excellent base to explore Hvar. By car you are minutes away from magical beaches and secluded coves, the nearby ports with their shops, cafes, restaurants, cultural events and nightlife. Likewise, excursions to the other islands are available. You can sail, hike, scuba dive, play tennis, cycle, go kayaking...

If you decide to come, you can even do it in style - a 13 min hydroplane flight from Split airport to Jelsa. It's a fantastic and affordable experience.

Great accommodation in beautiful part of the world

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 adults and three children, and we had a great time. The accommodation was great and very clean. The grounds were large and beautifully kept. The swimming pool area was where we spent the majority of our time, and it too was great. The village of Vrbanj is lovely - with a little shop and restaurant close by within a few minutes walking distance. (A car would be recommended for getting out further afield to the towns and beaches nearby though). Our hosts were very useful in terms of providing information and answering questions, but where very discrete and left us to enjoy our holiday.

All in all, we had a great time and would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely place!

A piece of heaven on Hvar

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families of 4 adults and 5 children and we stayed for a week in the August holidays 2014. Mirna and Drazen were so kind and helpful, welcoming us to their lovely home. The house was perfect for 2 families, one couple stayed in the cottage in the garden, one couple in the double bedroom off the main kitchen, and the children had the bedrooms on the upper level of the main house. The house was spotlessly clean, very nicely appointed and really well equipped with everything we needed. The children even had their own little kitchen on their level. We spent many hours around the pool and bbqing in the evenings - and the ambience was just perfect. The house is very central - very close to the little shop in the village, and a short walk to the local pizzeria - which was really good - and a short drive away to Stari Grad. We explored the entire island, and the village is literally right in the centre of the island - so very convenient to go anywhere. We loved our holiday on Hvar Island - thanks to Mirna and Drazen and their lovely home

Great for everyone

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for kids, particularly older swimmers. Safe and secure and great for our mobile but disabled son. Mobility is an issue for wheelchairs, but access is possible if a little more limited between the various parts. A car is a must and double parking available. Mirna and Drazen are fabulously kind and helpful and the property is to a high standard - but not overwhelmingly so. Very livable and a home from home. Very handy having Konoba Bogo a short walk away and beaches and great restaurants within 10 minute drive. Highly recommended
